Winnie the Pooh Cake

I made the tree out of rice crispy treats. This medium works great as it is very pliable and I'm able to shape it into whatever I need. Once I created the desired shape, I then began to cover it all up with fondant, which is another great cake item that offers instant color and smoothness to a cake. I made the hill out of actual cake and then I covered it all up with fondant. I then painted it and added all of the Pooh characters, which are store bought.
Reply: Adding My Two Cents:
Mae-Lan is certainly talented; I wish I could create cakes that were half as nice as her's. Anyway, if you’ve been looking for fun ideas for Winnie the Pooh cakes, this cool cake ought to get your creative juices flowing. Whether you want to focus on the characters of 100 Acre Wood or just Winnie the Pooh, I have some more cake ideas that I thought of after seeing Mae-Lan's cake.
Personally, Pooh is my favorite of the bunch and if you’re looking for Winnie the Pooh birthday ideas for a Pooh themed cake, I have the perfect idea. Remember, Pooh loves honey. Consider making a cake that looks like a honey pot and adding pooh figures to it.
Many of the Winnie the Pooh cakes I’ve seen focus on several characters, but they often forget about Kanga and Ru. If you want something really simple, start by making a large sheet cake and then consider decorating the cake with a path going through the meadow. On the path, you can place different Winnie the Pooh characters, including Pooh, Kanga, Roo, Piglet, Tigger and Eeyore and even Rabbit. You can buy the characters or you can try making your own from fondant or modeling paste.
If you're going to be entertaining very young children, you might want to make cupcakes instead of a big cake. If you want to keep the cupcakes simple, decorate them in green so it gives the appearance of being in the 100 Acre Wood. Then, simply add a small store bought Winnie the Pooh character to each cupcake. They will end up looking so cute you may not want to eat them. Make sure you take a few pictures before the little guests consume them.
